Who Are We? And What Do We Do?
The Independent Living Funds (ILF) are two funds set up and financed by UK central government.
The Independent Living (Extension) Fund is closed to new applications, and administers the payments to clients of the original ILF (prior to April 1993).
The Independent Living (1993) Fund is open to applications from severely disabled people who meet its eligibility criteria and are permanent residents of the United Kingdom.
The Independent Living Funds were set up as a national resource dedicated to the financial support of disabled people to enable them to choose to live in the community rather than in residential care.
